Subject: [gentoo-user] No console when booting with GRUB 2?

I've switched from GRUB 1 to GRUB 2 and am booting in EFI mode. Now when 
I boot Gentoo, I get no console. The screen is just stuck in the GRUB 
screen until X11 starts. I see no kernel messages. When I press 
Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get to a console, I only get a blank screen.

I tried setting:

   GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=text

in /etc/default/grub, but that doesn't do anything.

Halp! I need my consoles back!
